Pantomime star Erin McGregor has shared a genius parenting hack for when the tooth fairy needs to make a visit.
Erin’s six-year-old son, Harry, hit the exciting milestone of losing a tooth which can only mean one thing- the tooth fairy is going to be paying a visit.
The sister of the UFC fighter Conor McGregor took to Instagram to share the exciting news that Harry’s tooth fell out, but also revealed the smart way the tooth fairy came to take it away.
Posting a gorgeous photo of Harry smiling from ear to ear with a little gap in between his pearly whites, Erin penned, “The toothless beauty”.
The mum-of-two then revealed that the tooth fairy came while Harry was at school rather than at bedtime.
She explained, “And lots of you loved the idea of a tooth fairy visit while Mr Harry was in school. He isn’t sleeping great atm, full of beans from 2am til 530am last night”.
“He didn’t sleep Christmas Eve with excitement & possibly nerves. Same when he goes back to school or is about to go on holidays”.
Erin added, “Sometimes u gotta do things unconventional to suit your little person needs”. We couldn’t agree more, such a helpful tip for any little ones struggling with their sleep.
Erin welcomed Harry into the world with her partner Terry Kavanagh in July 2016. Terry proposed to Erin just last month after he appeared on stage during one of her pantomime performances.
